Bonjour!

Welcome to my newsletter! I’m a food and travel writer and author of five books, including The Lost Vintage, which was a USA Today Bestseller and Indie Next pick. My new novel, Jacqueline in Paris, is about the year Jacqueline Bouvier studied in France, from 1949 to 1950. She was twenty years old and she called it the happiest year of her life. This is Jackie before Jack – the origin story of an American icon – and how France became one of the greatest influences of her life. It’ll be published on September 27, 2022.

Why subscribe?

I love France but I don’t spend enough time there. I’m a travel writer who’s been sidelined by the pandemic and a novelist who’s starting her sixth book.

I love to drink wine and prefer cheese over chocolate.

My monthly newsletter offers recipes, travel tips, book giveaways and recommendations. Subscribers also get sneak peeks of my new books, and are the first to see cover reveals, and learn exciting news as it happens. I'll never share your address with anyone. Come join us!
